Abstract: In 1984 a curved bacillus living in the stomach of patients with gastritis and peptic ulceration was discovered and isolated. This organism named as Helicobacter Pylori (HP), has been shown to play a major role in the causation of duodenal ulcers. Persistence of helicobacter pylori has been partly attributed to re-infection of the stomach, especially where sanitary conditions are poor. Recent developments in the field of duodenal ulcer therapy have raised the hopes that this therapeutic hurdle can now be overcome by an alternative approach.
